Assistant Professor, Tenure Track, Computer Science
University of San Francisco
The Department of Computer Science at the University of San Francisco is accepting applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level starting in August 2019. We are looking for candidates from all areas of Computer Science or a closely-related field.
The Department of Computer Science is a diverse and growing community with 10 full-time faculty members (half of whom are female), over 400 undergraduate CS majors, and over 70 masters students. While we are growing, the CS department maintains small class sizes with 30 or fewer students, project-based learning, and a high degree of student-teacher interaction.
The department is highly collaborative both within and outside the department. In addition to an undergraduate CS major and a masters program in CS, the department also supports a new interdisciplinary undergraduate major and masters program in Data Science. Several faculty members are NSF funded and collaborate with industry in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area.
The University of San Francisco provides competitive salaries to live in the Bay Area and has excellent support for new faculty such as an internal funding mechanism, focused writing retreats, as well as multiple teaching assistants for your classes.
The University of San Francisco is located in the heart of one of the world's most innovative and diverse cities, and is home to a vibrant academic community of students and faculty who achieve excellence in their fields. Its diverse student body enjoys direct access to faculty, small classes and outstanding opportunities in the city itself. USF is San Francisco's first university, and its Jesuit mission helps ignite a student's passion for social justice and a desire to “Change the World From Here.” For more information, visit http://www.usfca.edu. USF was listed as a Tier One National University in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report and was ranked 6th in undergraduate student ethnic diversity.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, maintain an active research program that involves students, and perform service duties to the CS department and university. The standard teaching load for this position at USF is two 4-unit courses per semester with an additional third course every fourth semester (2-2-2-3 over two years).
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely-related field. Strong applicants from all CS sub-disciplines will be considered. Applicants must demonstrate both exceptional teaching ability and a strong potential for independent and collaborative research. In addition, an understanding of and commitment to support the mission of the University of San Francisco are required.
